LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Cole Custer is the youngest winner in a NASCAR national series race at 16, taking the checkered flag at New Hampshire in just his seventh career Truck Series start.
Custer dominated early and pulled away late off the final restart Saturday to win at 16 years, 7 months, 28 days.
Custer set a track record of 131.897 mph to win the pole. He led 148 of the 175 laps.
Darrell Wallace Jr., Matt Crafton, Johnny Sauter and John Nemechek complete the top five.
Last November in Phoenix, Erik Jones was the youngest winner in truck series history, winning at 17 years, 4 months on the mile track.
